I mentor and coach women and men who want to understand how to untangle themselves from co-dependent relationship patterns, heal massive heartbreak, and be fully self expressed. I help women unlearn patterns of relationship romantic illusions, to embody their feminine and re-pattern their masculine energy and their relationship to the masculine energy on the planet.  I show women how to let a men deep into the vulnerable spaces of their heart so they can actually have the intimacy they desire. I help men understand how to let a woman into their hearts, and how to be the kind of man that a woman will let into her most vulnerable spaces and let her guard down and how to show up in such a way with a woman that they are ignited, on fire, and do it without feeling manipulated. I believe that relationships can be about two equals, without power struggles, totally healing, loving, and real.

I do my work through 1:1 coaching, teaching sensual dance classes, writing, speaking, you-tubing, facebooking, instagraming, and other ings that I find pleasurable. Follow me!

The Journey of finding the gifts in the Darkness

darkness{Inspired by Mary Oliver’s quote: On the Gift of Darkness}

Here is my truth, the Lauren version:
When I was born, I was given a box full of darkness. It has been carried by my parents and their parents and their parents and their parents from a time when everyone knew god and separation was a known illusion. So when I was born, I was given this box full of darkness that has been carried in my blood for eons.

So I carried it. I received it without question and I took it on as mine. I carried it and carried it and carried it until I forgot that it was there. That box tormented me and kept me inside of is as a child and twisted and tangled my soul until it was so confused that I forgot who I AM.

When the darkness got too heavy, I started running. I started escaping. Everything I did was an escape, even the things I loved were an escape. I would escape to friends houses, to books, to movies, to music, to dance class, to writing, to anything I could occupy myself to do.

Then I discovered I could create ANYTHING. I could create myself. So I started creating myself to be what I thought I wanted to be, and put it over the hologram I had already created as a child to survive in the world. Layers and layers were on top of me. People are just layers and layers of secrets really. I tried to fit in to this group and that group, do this thing and that thing, I was excellent at fitting in and putting on the tribal garb. But it wasn’t who I AM. None of it. Who I AM was buried deep inside the box of darkness.

When I left home and college, I tried to build a life around the box, not seeing it was there. The life I built was one I imagined would bring me so much joy, but the life I built was built on a weak and rotting foundation. I tried to build on top of the box, I tried to build without seeing fully and clearly. It worked for a while and I made lots of money and built a business. But inside I was dying, red lining, withering away and I didn’t know why. I couldn’t see it then but I was even more tangled by being in personal growth land than I was before I entered. All my practices and processes and theories and language, it was all just more layers, more ways to shut myself deeper inside.

One day, it came knocking knocking, screaming, screaming, screaming, pushing, pushing that box of darkness. I thought I could take on everything at once, I was brave and curious. And when I saw what I saw I was terrified. So terrified that I started running harder. Only there was no where to run anymore. And then everything I loved got destroyed, everything around me was gone and I was left with the box and the energy of everything on top of the box I had built. At first I wanted to hate the box, what sort of fucking gift is this? There is nothing here. There is nothing I want here. Everything here is heavy and painful. Who is responsible for this? Who can I blame, I never asked for this, I never wanted it.

But it was already done, the only thing to do was sort through the box and clean it up. It’s here so I’m going in.

A year and a half later I’m still integrating the *gifts* inside the box.

Turns out, everything in that box is exactly what I need to be myself fully and do what I came here to do.

It’s not always the most fun or the easiest thing to do, but I’ve learned that when I don’t look and move through it, my life crumbles. That box has carved out the depth of my heart so deeply that now I can trust myself and the world. I feel everything and each day I see more and more clearly. It has not been easy and I would not trade it for anything because wading through that muck has shown me what I am capable of. And sometimes I still hate that fucking box, but there are treasures in there that only I can go in and claim. Turns out that box is exactly what I needed.

Turns out not everything in that box was mine to be responsible for in the first place so I’ve had to learn to hold others more accountable for that as I’ve learned how to be accountable for myself. And it turns out that learning to do that, to show up as I am, and to not allow others to make me wrong, to be responsible for what is mine and have an open heart while not accepting what wants to drag me down, has brought me closer to my core than anything ever has.

Do you have a story of sifting through your own box of gifts? I would love to hear about it. Leave me a comment or send me and email. :)

Sending you so much love on your journey! I know it’s not always easy, but I know you can handle it!

On Knowing: You don’t always have to KNOW to keep moving

image

On Knowing: Our own knowing is still transient and fluid. We might *know* something for a moment, and then receive it and then space opens for a new knowing. A deeper more richer knowing, something similar or completely different to what we * knew* before.

I’m finding that once I own my knowing, I speak it, it flows through me and if I try to cling to that new knowing, I start to contract. Sometimes I’m afraid of my knowing because I’m not sure I’m ready for what receiving and speaking that knowing will shift in my world.

Knowing. Truth. Desire. It’s all a thread we follow and it’s all fluid and changing.

What is real will always remain. The heart is a compassionate trickster sometimes. It will use what you think you want to lead you to what you actually want. That is why you don’t have to focus so much or worry about not being clear about what you want.

Your being, your soul knows what you want better than your human brain. Clinging to the next piece of knowing or clarity or desire and the temporary high of excitement, the temporary relief of discomfort, is just like dangling a carrot in front of a horse. The carrot dangler is leading the horse somewhere but the horse is transfixed on the excitement of getting the carrot. Trust that you are always being led.

Trust that your soul knows more than you even want to know right now. Let go of being the creator of the whole universe or your whole life, that is truly exhausting. If you’re the one creating everything your life is going to be seriously limited and eventually lead you into more and more controlling of everything around you.

The next time you get bent out of shape because you feel unclear about life or what you want, just say fuck it. You don’t need to know. All that BS about knowing what you want so you can move forward is just another way we get manipulated.

Just live your life and follow your heart. Let go of right and wrong. Those don’t exist. The more you trust that you can handle whatever situation comes to you, the more you can surrender into the immersion of your life. Again I say, YOU DON’T NEED TO KNOW.

Its in the feeling comfortable not knowing that we can move forward with fluidity and grace.It’s in our ability to move into what life brings to us without shutting it out that we create more depth and courage in our hearts. You don’t need to know it all.

You don’t need to be clear about what you want. You don’t need a man list that is 7 pages long to have a man show up for you. You don’t need to know what your purpose is to be living it. You don’t need to have a 6 figure business to be and feel successful.

The less you define yourself by things outside of you the more potent you become. The less you claim to know, the more access you have to the truth. The less you cling to your desires, the more room you leave to be surprised by the universe at the things you didn’t even know you wanted.

You don’t need to know. And you can just tell that little voice inside that needs to know it all to feel safe and ok, that Lauren said so. :)

Beg Him: On Sexy Desperation, Hot Neediness + Sexual Maturity

 

kneeling womanBeg him. With your heart. Beg with your wide open heart and all of your desires. Feel them. Deeply. Then let them go.

Let the vision of the two of you and the life you want, the babies you want, the adventures you want to have, the work in the world you can create together, feel them in your heart, let them

down into the caverns of your own longing, down to the depths of your heart where everything turns into gold from ash.

Beg him. Let your pussy swell. The juices run. Let them fill up until they inform your womb of your sweet desires and the well of thick honey sap stored there start to churn.

Let how much you want him to rip your clothes off and throw you up against the wall and fuck you rise up into your heart like a wildfire that burns away the walls of your heart.

Beg him. With your heart. Feel how needy you feel. Let yourself need him like you can’t survive. Let yourself need his cock like you can’t survive. Let yourself need his love like you can’t survive. Just for a moment, in every moment, for as long as you please.

Let your heart

into the floor. Like a magnet. Let it melt into the deepest caverns of your own longing until your heart is the whole room and you can feel it beating the blood of the whole world.

I need you. I want you. Choose me. I’m afraid to get hurt. I love you so much it hurts. I want to open but I don’t know how. I want to let you in and I’m afraid. Don’t leave me. I love you. Let’s have babies and run the world together. Let’s make love. Please. Please lover. Please.

Let your desperation be known. Be so unapologetically desperate that your heart becomes one with everything.

Get down on your knees and beg him with your heart. Kneel at his feet and beg him with your heart. Look into his eyes and show him your heart. Show him your longing. Lay down your sword and become more vulnerable than you have ever felt. More unprotected than you have ever been. More allowing of yourself than you have ever been.

Beg him. With your heart. Need him without needing him. Love him and let him go in every moment. Stay with your own heart in every moment.

Beg him. Standing there open wide with nothing to hide, everything to lose and nothing to protect.

This is the offering of a woman’s heart to a man she loves.

Art by Luis Royo

—————————————————————————————————————————————

There are two ways to be needy and desperate. The first way says “fill the hole in my heart” I need you to fill me because I need you to complete me. The second says “Fill me. I’m here. I’m open. I’m ready. I’m not asking you to fill the hole in my heart AND I still feel this desperate need for you and your love. I can live without you and it, and I can still allow myself to feel my own desperate desire for you.”

I realized this while laying on a couch with the man I love, feeling the crossroads between sinking into self pity, judgement,  disconnect and just feeling everything that I was feeling, giving myself all the feelings and desires that were inside of me. Opening WIDER.

The thing about having so much desire is that it puts us in a sense that there is so much to lose. So to feel it, even when we think or know that it’s not for us at this moment in time, can be painful.

As I’ve been working with more and more people in the way I have been and taking myself through this journey of life, I have come to see that one of our greatest fears as humans is not being able to handle our own emotions. We fear the sensation in our bodies so much and we fear the unknowable so much that we wrap story after story, no matter how fucked up it is, around it in order to make some kind of sense of it and feel in control and in the KNOW. Needing to KNOW everything is one big way that we can keep ourselves from surrender, trust, and intimacy.

We abandon ourselves and our feelings because we don’t know how to move through them and often it feels like we will die or get stuck there forever.

The experience I had that inspired this poem reminded me of the journey of opening, emotional maturity, and sexual maturity as a woman. The whole goddess and women’s empowerment movement has given women so much freedom and liberation in how we play with and use our sexuality and while it has been so freeing for many,  it can also become a disillusioned path to confusing power with control. I recognized in myself several months ago a disconnect with how my own sexual power was flowing out of me and being expressed. I was more than comfortable in erotic and sexual energies with myself and others, but something was off. In my own journey I’ve spent time in communities of polyamourous people and others who practice a very open way of loving and expressing sexuality, I’ve trained in Orgasmic meditation, I’ve been to cuddle parties, I’ve gone to plenty of edges in my sexuality. That part of my journey was important for helping me dismantle my ideas about monogomy, relationship and how things SHOULD be. It helped blow open all my fears around jealousy and showed me just how much of my self worth I was placing outside myself and inside of the men I was with, and it also left me blown open with a massive hole to fill.

The sexual goddess culture can sometimes open a woman up and instead of teach her to feel her own sexual power and show her how to refine it within her body and guide her towards her own heart, can further fragment and disconnect a woman from the unconscious parts of her that want to manipulate and control the world around her and instead she learns to use her sex as a tool for manipulation in the name of empowerment. It’s not always easy to spot or see, because who wants to admit that they are being controlling or manipulative. And still, a lot of men don’t know how to spot or be aware of a woman’s sexual control because they have still not cultivated a resolve strong enough to resist his own sexual desire and need. This happened to me for sure, and it wasn’t until I had a man refuse to have sex with me and share with me that he wasn’t interested in my sexual prowess that I woke up. I was using my sexual power to source my own sense of worth and power in the world and in some ways to hook a man into my vortex and have him want to stay close to me and with me so that I could feel safe about him not leaving me at some point.

When I was laying on the couch just feeling all my longing without judgement, it was intoxicating. My heart was vibrating and I felt myself sinking into the floor. He just sat there as I felt and at some point said to me “It’s beautiful to see and feel you feeling so much”, which in retrospect was huge for him because in the past it may have been uncomfortable for him to stay present while I felt all of the desires I had for him, that he was not able to give to me. The experience of it all reminded me how powerful that kind of longing is, because it gets sent out as this message from our hearts at our most vulnerable, a cry for what we want, and a self witnessing of our desires.

I have seen that throughout my life, desires have come and gone, and some things I desired last year I no longer want at all, but desire is like a thread, just as in life, the desire and feeling the desire was a step on the path to come to what it is we really desire. It’s like burning away layers. 

My heart continued to throb and pulse with longing for the entire night and what I saw in him as he sat there was that he just gravitated towards me. I could feel him wanting to give me what my heart was putting out. It was almost like he had to stop himself.  Because for a man, it feels GOOD to give to a woman who is begging from a place of wholeness. From that place, what you want can be satisfied and fulfilled. When you are in need from a place of fill my hole, it’s like this insatiable hunger that will never ever be satisfied and for him to give to you from that place is like agreeing to enter into a reality where he will forever be at your mercy and you might be at first feeling quenched, subconsciously you’ll never be able to really trust him or open to him.

The truth is, what I was doing was feeling all my desire without actually needing my desires to become reality, or making him wrong for not choosing me or choosing to have those with me, and it allowed me to show up fully present without an agenda. This was something I was only able to do because of the journey I have been on.

And during that night, I experienced the fullest surrender and offering of my heart to the man that I love that I’ve ever felt, it was like honey melting off of my heart for hours and hours. Like a cat purring with delight. And I’ll never forget that feeling.

 

Calling out Men who run from a Woman’s Fire {Another Paul + Lauren Conversation}

 Men who are embodying the masculine do not usually bring much fire, they have a sword…that they forge and sharpen in the fire.

fire armour

Painting by Matthias Utomo {juhupainting}

Have you ever had a guy in your world show up and offer himself to be this spiritual macho man who could hold space for you and wants you to be all of who you are, to see all of you but then suddenly starts to put conditions on how you’re showing up when it doesn’t fit into his positive thinking, “I’m creating joy here” world?

Have you ever had a guy walk out on your connection because he felt like you were too much?

Or as a man, have you been that guy? Have you walked away from a woman because you felt too squeezed by her emotions or her beingness?

We’ve all walked away from relationships because they were too hard or had too much conflict, and there is nothing wrong with that. On some level though at a certain point in your growth, you will find that moving through and staying through the fire of relationship is one of the fastest ways toward wholeness.

The idea that we need to sit alone on a mountain and learn to love ourselves unconditonally and THEN we will have that loving relationship is kinda bullshit. We just can’t do it alone. We need each other to see ourselves and we have this sacred pact as humans that says “I will see you and when I see you, you will come to see and love yourself”.

We come to love ourselves through loving others unconditionally and in the fire of a 1:1 love relationship, all our shit comes to the surface. Learning to navigate the waters and fires of this path is a pathway to freedom in your interpersonal relationships like you’ve never known.

This is a conversation that we had on why men run away from a woman’s fire:

It’s a well rounded conversation about this ONE side of the relationship dynamic. Meaning, we spend the whole time looking at and diving into what happens on the MEN’s side of things when they want enter into a relationship with a woman offering to hold space and be someone who can see and hear all of her, but then run away when things get difficult for them. We will talk about what happens on the woman’s side of this in another convo.

Here are a few gems to give you insight to what we share:

  • Men are consistently asking to be grown grown grown, and when the growth shows up, they peace out, why is that and how can they shift it?
  • How to recognize the subtle ways that men can get you to go into agreement with their discomfort of how you are, so you can feel more free to just be you no matter how he reacts
  • How spiritually evolved men can sidestep their own responsibility for their own discomfort with how a woman is showing up
  • Why this dynamic leaves women blown open without clarity on their own unconscious behaviors that keep them from the intimacy that they want
  • How this is all connected to a man’s unresolved connected and energetic chording to his mother

One of our clients listened to this audio this week and had this to say:

“Feeling gratitude for Paul cooper and Lauren Sheehan. These two are dialed in and well on their own way in their own journey. If anyone needs someone to hold them in a powerful space and greater possibilities, it is these two. Invest your heart, thoughts, time, energy, money, etc in yourself. You cannot skip this step on your path to wholeness.” – Greg Meadows
